The appearance in this journal of the paper on anxiety by Menzies, Onslow, and Packman (1999)  represents a renewed attempt to explain the role that anxiety plays in stuttering. The notion that anxiety is implicated in stuttering is an old one with a long and tangled history (see Bloodstein, 1995; Ingham, 1984  for reviews). Previous attempts to explain connections between anxiety and stuttering have not, however, been all that successful. Researchers and clinicians remain hard pressed to demonstrate to themselves, their clients who stutter, and to laypersons in general the mechanisms by which anxiety relates to stuttering. Unfortunately, more recent attempts to explicate the relationship have not been very helpful.
